Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will be fielding questions from reporters following his $2.6 billion Canada Greener Homes Grant announcement.
Trudeau said earlier in the day that the home retrofit grant will help Canada in its fight against climate change. Retrofitting homes will help lower emissions while helping home owners save money on their energy bills.
The prime minister made the announcement alongside the Minister of Natural Resources Seamus O’Regan Jr., and the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Women and Gender Equality and Rural Economic Development Gudie Hutchings.
In April, Trudeau announced an increase to Canada’s emissions reduction target to between 40 and 45 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030.
